Debugging Device Projects
Debugging projects that run on smart devices is like debugging projects that run on the desktop. One difference is that the device project processor on which the debugging happens is not on the development computer, and therefore connection issues play a role in device debugging.
The topics in this section summarize the differences from debugging desktop projects, and provide some useful tips for debugging on a device.
